The Virginia countryside has many great businesses and general stores that provide everything from locally produced wine to horse tack, all with the personal and neighborly service that you cannot get from a national retailer. And as added benefits of shopping local, besides getting to know your neighbors, you are putting money back into the community and supporting your community's character. 

So find a business run by friendly neighbors and shop for groceries, home decor, or the perfect gift for your loved ones. Shop local!
